-and-run is complete. at this very hour president obama's back in washington after fleeing new york city and the united nations general assembly. that means yet again he's free to resume his daily routine of fundraising, hobnobbing with celebrities and campaigning. as we reported last night during his brief visit to new york he found time to sit down for an interview with, yes, the ladies of "the view." today he cleared a few minutes on his schedule to deliver a quick speech at the u.n., however declined to meet with a single world leader while on the ground. that makes him the first president in more than two decades to avoid his counterparts on a u.n. trip. in addition, he uttered the word "terrorist" only once today. ironically the same amount of times that he tweeted about the ongoing nfl/referee labor dispute. it's statistics like these that show where the president's priorities lie. let's see, whoopi goldberg and joy behar, trumping benjamin netanyahu. if you needed more proof that this president is not interested in siding with our allies in israel, it came yesterday. this is the american delega

been trying to have a campaign that was structured around the idea that barack obama was a nice guy, a good fellow, a good dad and an all-around swell american but that mitt romney thought that he could probably do a better job being president and manager of the economy than he could because they were very worried about not only fending voters had voted for obama in 2008. they didn't want to sound like romney was being a jerk, but they were worried, too, pretty obviously, about what the establishment press was going to say. if romney came out and attacked the first black president on his record and went after him, what would people say? well, that strategy, the latest polling tells us, has not exactly been a bell ringer in ohio. so what you hear from romney is he gets to the must-win. it is an absolutely must-win state for him is this tough new tone, and not only is he talking about the economy as you heard him do there, but guess what's back? the debt clock. they've got the debt clock back, and they're talking a lot about how much president obama's policies cost, they're talking ab

that is almostatz important. president obama went in 2009 and had the speech in cairo reaching out saying we changing the relationship with muslim nations. this does not bode well for that in pointing out the difference compare to him and bush. >> brian: biggest thing not calling egypt a ally. who is the hillary clinton. she only wanted 24 years whompt could be next. senator kerry or the ambassador we saw spinning things and possibly the disillusion with the truth. ambassador susan rice. >> steve: it looks like the smart money said she would wind up with a national security job in the second term of a barack obama administration. >> gretchen: we'll continue to talk about this. are the obama's chicken's coming home to roost? many foretold the deadly attack. i a plane comes in for a landing and minus wheels. that's why we are showing it to you. >> steve: old double nickel. ♪ come on baby, and rescue. ♪ come on, baby. and rescue me. ♪ cause i need you by my side. ♪ can't you see that i am lonely .... i love this time of year. it's all about change. the kids are going back to school, it'
, another failure that cost brave americans their lives. does president obama take responsibility for this reckless program? of course not. he doesn't want that on his record. instead, again he lies pointing the finger of blame, when all else fails blame george w. bush. >> first of all, i think it's important the fast and furious program was begun under the previous administration. >> sean: that is also a lie. here is reaction to the ongoing cover-up that is going on in benghazi, former speaker of the house of representatives, newt gingrich. mr. speaker, welcome back. >> good to be you. >> sean: the ambassador's body dragged through the streets. this is more infuriating thing to me. this is the anniversary of 9/11. apparently we didn't beef up security and the president had no answer last night. we had these attacks and this is about movie trailer released in july. after two weeks of pressure, it's self-evident it was a terror attack and then the president says it was related to the movie. they can't get it straight. do you think they are lying? >> yes. i think the president of th
ambassador leave the country of iraq. that president obama make a televised apology for the movie that some say sparked protests out there. bill: in afghanistan signs that the drawdown is well underway. the military is trying to move thousands of vehicles and tons of equipment out of the country, a difficult task due to the land-locked location and rough terrain. our troops are spending hours readying equipment for the long journey. >> i'm glad to get rid of it. it's a lot of stuff. it is a lot of stuff to keep accountability of. i have great officers and ncos who help me do that. it is nice to finally start making the process. bill: there are 23,000 marines and soldiers also departing afghanistan this year. leaving about 68,000 americans still fighting the war in that country. martha: all right. let's swing back now to the issue of the economy which is a big one of course in this election. number of americans seeking unemployment benefits last week dropped slightly 382,000. that is sign economists say that highering remains very weak. that number needs to be under 350,000 to show meaningfu

in listening to the radio reports, no. headline is that the obama administration said the libya attack was a terrorist attack. it doesn't say original low that they said it wasn't. >> eric: they had to leave enough time few hours after our diplomats were killed. president obama got on air force won and did a fundraiser in vegas. if it is terror and the president decide to go to vegas and collect checks it looks worse. they bought time and put a week between that decision and now terror it makes him look better. >> brian: by the way, the president has attended the last five, and jay carny got snippy. he suggested to clarify this is our question to and from the producer. just to clarify. did it presidency that it was not an attack on 9/11? is that the administration or is that the president's view? jay carny said the attack occurred on september 11th. he used the same calendar on the white house that you do and yes, he sees it. >> yes, snippy, right. >> gretchen: you don't have to be a brain surgeon that september 11th something bad happened in 2001 and to be snippy about that date, i do
by the obama campaign. >> i think the president will not be able to continue to mischaracterize my pathway. so i will be able to mine and he will describe his and people will make a choice. that is it great thing about democracy. i will not fool people to think things. that ends during the debates. >> reporter: the governor says the romney campaign pointing to the acknowledgement that the president made last night not in that "60 minutes" interview that was broadcast but in the webcast that followed saying he thinks some of the attacks his campaign leveled at governor romney have actually gone overboard, patti ann. patti ann: yeah, john. the romney campaign hammering the president on that "60 minutes" interview. tell us more about that. >> reporter: hammering him on a number of fronts. the current idea that the middle east unrest and murder of chris stevens are bumps in the road as president obama said last night, characterizing as quote noise, israel's concerns about iran's pursuit of a nuclear weapon. then there was this about the president's biggest disappointment. >> if you ask me what's m

obama went to cairo after he became united states, and he gave a speech that was an outreach to muslim and apologetic from the united states. his theory if i am nice to the people of middle east they will be our friend. here is a snippet of that. >> i come to cairo to seek a new beginning between the united states and muslim. one based on mutual about and mutual respect and based on the truth that america and islam are not exclusive and need not be in competition . >> brian: we knew that and how is that going. charles weighed in last night. >> we are seeing the melt down and collapse of the obama policy on the muslim world. the irony that it began in cairo at the same place in which he made the speech in which hemented a new beginning and implying other presidents particularly bush, there was a lack of mutual respect which was an insult to the united states and which had gone to war six times on behalf of muslims and kuwait and bosra, iraq and tan stan and elsewhere. so to imply that we somehow had mistreated the muslim which was the premise of his speech and how the iraq war inflamed
to be careful because they're concerned about action there. in fact, in the statement, that president obama issued regarding the deaths of the u.s. diplomats he says that the united states will provide all necessary resources for security, personnel and libya and around the world. this is a global concern, very at least, a regional concern as we look harder at incidents there. bill: all this happened yesterday on the date of the calendar was september 11th. is there a connection there, greg or what can we report on that? >> reporter: there has been no declared connection. certainly it is an eerie coincidence at the very least and underscoring of security concerns for americans and the risks inherent in serving in these countries, especially in that region, bill. bill: greg, there will be a lot to report throughout the day. thank you. we'll be back in touch with you live in london. martha has more. martha: breaking news on this as we mentioned chris stevens is not the first u.s. ambassador to be killed in the line of duty. looking back five others have been killed by terrorists before ambass
may cost president obama. and politically looking at this sort of locked up place for him in a foreign policy debate. ben stein coming out yesterday saying he thinks this whole scandal could be worse than watergate because at the end of it people died. take a listen. >> they had warning after warning. yesterday's "wall street journal" makes it extremely clear how much warning they had. various assassination attempts. destruction of property attempts reports from various intelligence sources. they did nothing to protect the ambassador whatsoever. that's one. plus, there was the coverup afterwards. how much worse than the watergate coverup? that's a joke. >> that echoed comments made by governor huckabee. he said essentially the same thing that this does resemble the coverup at watergate in this case someone died. >> governor huckabee is going to be on with us so we can talk about that have you seen enough of all of this in the media? in fact if you have been watching fox news we have been talking about it every single day. if you happened to watch "the today show" this past week or good
. it doesn't necessarily mean anything. i am wondering if what this is saying for president obama is that people are going to look at their financial statements, if they are lucky enough to have accounts and they are up, or they will look at their home values if they are lucky enough to have a home going up in value and they feel, on paper, some of this wealth affect we hear about. you dismiss that? >>guest: well, it is a good point that perhaps what this is telling us is that bernanke at the federal reserve is throwing the kitchen sink at this to stimulate it through the economy, through the election, and stimulate us through the fiscal cliff which could lead to asession down the line. the question is, are investors going to look at main street data and see the weakness which business owners see each day or will it look at the 401(k) state? the short run the 401(k) sames are powerful. in the long run, the economic data is reality. we know that the federal reserve alone cannot solve the world's problems. you have to have harmony in washington, you have to have uni in washington an

the obama administration has handled what happened in libya and the ilg of our own u.s. ambassador and some very mixed messages. >> we have no information to suggest that it was a pre-planned attack. it is not a reaction to the 9/11 anniversary that we know of. >> some have thought -- sought to justify this vicious behavior along with the protest that took place at our embassy in cairo yesterday as a response to inflammatory material posted on the internet. >> this was not a pre-planned, premeditated attack. >> we don't know yet. so we're going to continue to investigate this. >> how could ambassador rice and jay carney there just a week ago have said so unquiskably this was not a pre-planned uncoordinated attack. this was not a terrorist attack. this had nothing to do with 9/11. this had nothing to do with the u.s. policies. they were so unequivocal. why did they have that message a week ago? and now it has morphed completely into. >> a 180. >> a 180 before we debate it. hear what hillary clinton said yesterday now about this attack on our consulate. >> what happened in benghazi was a tars
: president morsi is in cairo. he talked to president obama last night. he has not exactly towed the u.s. line on this. he so far said people have right to protest after a phone call with president obama late last night where president obama took a very tough line with egyptian president. he went on tv today, gave a seven-minute speech. he said it is unislamic to commit this kind of violence against foreigners and foreign embassies. he has gone short of saying the protests they want to stop. they want something called a no insult to our prophet march. the muslim brotherhood calling for the protests is the same party that president morsi. you can see the tear gas coming. all the protesters running as police have started firing back into their line, bill. bill: such a game of cat-and-mouse on the streets below. thanks for your reportering on the streets of cairo. bill: we'll stay on it. we'll bring all the pictures as we come in. we have more details on the arrests linked to the deadly attack on the u.s. consulate in libya. libyan authorities are reportedly interrogating four men right now. the
